Lock on, lock off. The StarBook Mk V features function lock, that when enabled, the F-keys behave as if you are holding down the Fn key. This gives you quick access to an array of function keys designed to speed up certain tasks, such as media control and adjusting display brightness.

Custom keyboard layouts. There are 17 major keyboard variants globally and over a hundred other variants such as Dvorak and Colemak. We have to make keyboards in large quantities; this is the reason, that as a small company, we currently offer two layouts, English (UK) and English (US). The number of requests we receive for different layouts varies a lot, so to allow us to offer new layouts that you want, we've created a system that gives you total control.
